REPLACEMENT OF OLD COMPUTERS/PRINTERS AND PROVISION OF ADEQUATE BATTERY BACK UP AT POST OFFICES
There are so many complaints received from various offices with regard to non working of Computers/Printers and battery backups. It also came to our notice that divisional units are not condemning PCs/Printers which are unserviceable, beyond repairs and completed life period minimum 8 eight years. The difficulty is mostly because of non availability of History sheets due to diversion of computer hardware and peripherals. It is requested to look into in the matter.

HOLDING MEETINGS, MELAS AND TRAININGS ON SUNDAYS AND HOLIDAYS

REQUEST TO PREVENT DIVISIONAL HEADS FOR FORCING EMPLOYEES FOR PURCHASE OF PRODUCTS AND OPENING NUMBER OF ACCOUNTS OF SMALL AMOUNT
Staff side feels panic when the Divisional Heads force employees for purchase of various products. Under pressure of selling various products like Flat rate boxes, they purchase themselves and make a show of business. GDS employees are similarly forced to take RPLI policies and that too by making pieces of one policy. Employees are forced to open number of accounts of small amounts to show fake achievement of targets set by higher officers. Such a bewildering theory of achievement of targets is not advantageous to any side. It is requested to please see that feasible targets are set and there is an encouraging atmosphere in which employees work hard to achieve them.

Staff side urges for compensation to staff as admissible.
TIMELY HOLDING OF MEETINGS WITH UNIONS AT DIFFERENT LEVELS
No formal meetings at various levels are held within prescribed time limit. There is unconvincing delay in holding bimonthly meetings and issue of minutes at Rajkot region. Gap of so many months in holding bimonthly meeting at HQ region and Four monthly as well as RJCM meetings creates ill impression amongst staff side. It is requested to maintain calendar of union meetings to be held and ensure timely holding of all such meetings.
